Why do my charms in Windows 8 open on the incorrect monitor?
If you use a USB video adapter to connect an external monitor to a Windows 8 touchscreen computer, and you swipe on the touchscreen to open the charms bar, the charms bar might open on the external monitor. You can use Windows Key + C to open the charms on the touchscreen, or you can do the following:
- On the touchscreen, open the side bar by touching on the bottom right corner and sliding up.
- Click Search.
- Type Calibrate and select Calibrate the screen for pen and touch input.
- Select Display and click Setup, which will ask you to touch the screen.
If you swipe for charms, they should now open on the touchscreen.
